    The web site above has some very goods info about the Arizona.

    I have two numbers on the people who were off ship or thrown off the ship. 75 and 334. I don't know which is right.

    28 have already joind their ship mates.

    Auctioneer,

    Great thread on the aniversary of this day. Very interesting facts to be found also. My dad served in the submarine service after Pearl Harbor for the duration of the war. He rarely talked about it but 1 of the things he did mention was coming back to Pearl & all the old on the surface. They WERE without a doubt, the greatest generation!

    Bob Griffith, and to others here. Get your WWII vets in the family to write or tape their events of the war and send them to the Smithsonian or another history group. What happened to them should be remembered and stored away for history. Just let them do it in private.
